Obama Supporters: Is Anti-Woman the New Racism?

Have any of you noticed the pleasure with which Obama supporters and sympathizers have taken out after Alaska Governor Sarah Palin? These aren't ordinary citizens with a viewpoint; they are skilled political operatives who have embarked on a campaign to harass, belittle, marginalize and ridicule a woman who they don't like. It is as if ABC's Charlie Gibson, who conducted his lip pursing, sneering interview of Gov. Palin peering over his glasses and down his nose at the object of disgust, sent a message that creating a hostile environment for her campaign is the right thing to do. His fellow Democrats jumped in with the enthusiasm of a dog chasing a rabbit. In the name of pushing Barack Obama back into the number one spot, open season has been declared on the Vice-president nominee. Nothing is off limits. What is worse, is that Barack Obama is either standing idly by or encouraging his people to engage in this filthy behavior. This is leadership? This is change?

Something is very, very wrong indeed when an honorable governor, who is also a women, is treated in such a manner. Every decent American needs to speak out against this bullying. Anti-woman sentiment is ugly. It needs to be stopped.

Thank you for your feelings on this Publia! My wife is outraged by this also, and I hear her sentiments echoed in your words. We can truly see which party is for every person, not because of their sex or race, but because we value the independent spirit of the individual and what kind of contribution they can make in this world.

Tell your wife to please speak up at every opportunity!

For years I heard the women of the Democratic Party carry on about the oppression of women. I didn't say too much. Why would they complain unless there was a problem? But other than good jobs and pay, I did not know what they were talking about. Now I know why. Having been raised in a good Republican household I had never experienced this type of anti-woman hatred.
